Andrew Garland (Guglielmo), baritone, “had the crowd in his hands,” said the Boston Globe of his recent performance as Papageno in The Magic Flute with Boston Baroque. This season, Garland joined Boston Lyric Opera for La bohème, Dayton Opera in a world premiere prequel to Carmina Burana, Bob Jones University as Dandini in La Cenerentola, and the Colorado Symphony for performances of Messiah. Last season was highlighted by his return to Seattle Opera as Harlekin in Ariadne auf Naxos. Past performances include Dandini with Opera Philadelphia and Fort Worth Opera, Mercurio (La Calisto) and the title role in Galileo Galilei by Philip Glass at Cincinnati Opera, Papageno at Boston Lyric Opera, and Riolobo (Florencia en el Amazonas) and Schaunard (La bohème) at Seattle Opera. Next season he performs world premieres with Minnesota Opera (William Bolcom) and the Houston Symphony (Gabriela Lena Frank and Pulitzer Prize winner Nilo Cruz). Garland is widely recognized as a leader in recital work. Warren Jones, Marilyn Horne, Steven Blier, a number of American composers, and several major music publications all endorse him as a highly communicative singer leading the way for the song recital into the twenty-first century, and he is the cover story on the May issue of Classical Singer magazine. Garland brings his highly communicative style to the concert stage with orchestras including the Atlanta Symphony, Houston Symphony, Boston Baroque, Handel and Haydn Society, Albany Symphony, Boston Youth Symphony, National Philharmonic, Washington Master Chorale at the Kennedy Center and National Chorale at Lincoln Center.
